“These are an old fashioned tart like baked 'cup' with a delightful nut filling and a touch of jam on the bottom. An old favorite that I haven't made for some time - memory fails as to how many tart cups it makes so at this time the servings a guesstimate. . (will be making them soon and come back to add just how many tarts I get) Not having a cook to question for this recipe I use three beaten egg whites for my filling.”
18 tarts

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In bowl mix together to make dough - butter, flour, confectioners sugar, egg yolks and vanilla; on floured board roll out dough 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Cut out circles to fit into individual tart pans.
  3. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes or until nicely golden; cool.
  4. Prepare filling - separate eggs beat egg yolks with sugar and vanilla for five minutes.
  5. Beat egg whites (stiff) - fold the stiffly beaten whites and walnuts in small portions alternately and mix slightly
  6. Spread some jam on the bottom of each cup and fill with the filling mixture.
  7. Bake another 15 minutes ( I bake this part at a lower temperature - but ovens do vary) They are baked much like tarts.
